Squeeky fan noise behind the dash

Hi All,

In addition to the fuel pump chirping noise my 14 MDX just started to make a squeaky noise coming from behind the dash.

I suspect the noise to be coming from the AC fan somewhere behind the dash because if I turn the AC off when the noise is audible, I can hear the noise wind down until it stops. Also I don't hear the noise when AC is off.

I dropped off the car at the dealership for diagnostic but was told no noise was heard.

Wondering if anyone have similar issue and if they were able to get a fix on the issue.

Thank you.

when i turn off the fan, whether or not ac is on, there is always a wind down squeky sound. I only hear it when shutting down, not when it is running at regular speed.

Just found this old thread, and it is exactly what I'm hearing - anyone have success getting this fixed? I've tried once, but of course it didn't make the noise for the dealer. Trying again next week.

I suggest making a recording of the wind down noise and show it to the dealer for diagnosis.

A good way to play the recorded noise is to use the Bluetooth feature in your car. This way the tech can get a good sample of it before they take the car in.

I did the same and the tech was able to hear the noise in the car. He replaced the blower under warranty. Noise gone. Good luck!

Could be some debris in the blower impeller. Remove the cabin filter and inspect. Blowing out with compressed air may clean out small stuff.
